I just received a letter from the Baltimore Food Co-op announcing the store's closure.
Written by Mary Cox, the co-op's board of director president, it reads:
"It is with deep regret that I must inform you that the Baltimore Food Co-op has closed. I know I was not alone in having a dream of a vibrant food co-op owned by and serving the people of Baltimore. Many of us worked hard to achieve that dream, but unfortunately the co-op was not able to succeed financially. Thank you for your patronage, support, membership and faith during the past year."
This is sad news. There was so much excitement when the co-op opened in the former Mill Valley General Store last summer.
